Mine were great over the summer, but I have seen the decline in September and October.
I would attribute this to probably a number of reasons including
- The end of baseball season (my port is 80% baseball)
- The flooding of the market in September with the 5th anniversary (most of my stuff at lowest price when added, was no longer at lowest price. This, combined with a 60-72 hour work week and no time to update my prices probably was a reason for a slow down)
But it seems that about half of my sales have been Amazon over the past 2 weeks, which would make me think that there has been even less traffic on the site. I'm hoping the transition in sites doesn't ruin a good thing.
